Take A Few Short Looks at the Robocop Remake

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 3, 2014 in Cinema


Still on the fence about the upcoming remake of Robocop? I know I still am. That said, these new clips from the film definitely left me feeling a bit more confident in the whole affair — but then again, I wasn’t confident at all to start. These clips shine a bit more light on the characters and style of the movie. Michael Keaton definitely seems to be having fun here, I’ll say that much! The film will arrive later this week: February 7th. I do wonder how it’ll do in the box office… are there enough people hungry for a new Robocop? Check out all the various clips below. Read more…



Latest RoboCop Trailer is Filled With Even More Explosions

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 8, 2013 in Cinema


Yes, the RoboCop remake is closing in on us. Will it ruin our childhood? Will it drive our hopes for a good remake into the ground? Or will it just provide us with one of the silliest snippets all year: Samuel L. Jackson yelling at a camera, asking why America is “robo-phobic.” Maybe this will be some awful fun? This trailer is definitely better than the first one, and I still like the designs of some of the robots shown in the beginning.  I’d think I’d just rather see an original film not tethered down by what it’s remaking. But try convincing Hollywood of that! The trailer is embedded below. Read more…



The Robocop Remake Trailer is Here

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 7, 2013 in Cinema


Which one of you asked for this? Where was the demand for a Robocop remake? I’ll suss you out if it’s the last thing I do. José Padilha is directing this new take on the classic film with a ton of solid actors in tow: Koel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, and Abbie Cornish. But despite a great lineup, I’m still not sure about the presentation of the film. It feels less like Robocop and more like a generic sci-fi action pic. Perhaps it’s just the way the trailer is cut. At least the important elements from the original are there! Watch the trailer below. Read more…



New Robocop Viral Website Goes Up

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 20, 2013 in Cinema


Man, are you excited for a Robocop remake? It’s even sort of timely now! Well, maybe my excitement for a lot of these big-budget remakes is pretty low, but I can always have a bit of fun with a good viral website – especially one as silly as this. To promote the upcoming Robocop remake, a marketing website for OmniCorp now exists – full to the brim with happy, smiling people standing next to terrifying killing machines. Check out the full site, there’s plenty there to look at. Also, is 2027 the new default “near future” date? Because I see it popping up more and more. I’m not sure if I want killer robots by then.

Robocop Reboot Nabs a Writer

Robocop Wall

Last year we heard about MGM’s plans to reboot the Robocop franchise. While I wasn’t adverse to the idea, I truly hoped they would just craft a new sequel. It might not have worked out so well for Singer’s Superman Returns, but the original Robocop was quite good for its time, claymation aside. That said, I can’t fault director José Padilha for wanting to place his own stamp on the iconic series. Now it seems he’s found just the man to make that happen. Read more…

Robocop is Serious Business

Posted by Tim Sheehy on May 11, 2011 in Fandom

Like many of the newer cable networks, the Science Channel lies on the fringe of my available HD programming. I almost never catch any of the shows, but I once happened upon it while an episode of Sci-Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible was airing. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the program, the host Dr.Michio Kaku takes concepts from Science Fiction and tries to explain how he thinks they’d work using current scientific knowledge and technology. The guys from Devestator Quarterly threw together this little parody showing us that some fanboys out there might take issue with his often liberal approach to some of the lore we hold so sacred. Campy? Sure, but it’s worth a laugh or two. Read more…

The Robocop Toy We’ve All Been Waiting For

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Feb 10, 2011 in Cinema, Hobbies and Collections

Robocop Figma

Last weekend marked Tokyo’s 2011 Winter Wonder Festival, a show dedicated specifically Japan’s booming toy market. There, skilled artisans are allowed to sell their custom garage kit models while companies like Kotobukiya and Max Factory show off their upcoming product lines. One of the more popular lines would be Max Factory’s Figmas. The big selling point on these figures, in addition to being incredibly affordable, is their small joint sizes, allowing for good amount of articulation. They also tend to come with interchangable parts — such as heads, or arms — and accessories to match each figure.
